The Painted Turtle is a year-round camp serving children with chronic and life-threatening medical conditions. The mission of the organization is to inspire campers to become their greater selves.

The Painted Turtle is looking for volunteer counselors for our Spring and Fall Family weekends in 2017! Each weekend session serves a different population of campers facing chronic or life-threatening medical conditions. Volunteers can work as family pals (as a guide/mentor for a family) or program pals in areas such as Arts & Crafts, Fishing, Woodshop etc.

Family Weekends run from Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. The camp is located 60 miles NE of Los Angeles. Transportation from LAX can be arranged for volunteers coming long distances. Volunteers must be 19 years of age, and may be from any state or country. Please apply by filing our on-line application at www.thepaintedturtle.org.

Volunteering at The Painted Turtle is an exhilarating and inspiring way to spend a weekend among deserving families! We are looking for creative, fun, caring and responsible volunteers! www.thepaintedturtle.org
